Splatoon 3 Slosher – Best uses and weaknesses

Throw ink like a champ.

Splatoon 3 offers many ways to engage in ink-based warfare. You can choose from a variety of weapon types, but what is more fun than throwing buckets of ink around? The Slosher is precisely that—a bucket of ink. This weapon has great coverage and damage, making it a great choice. Below you can find a list of strengths and weaknesses as well as different Slosher-type weapons.

Splatoon 3 Slosher Strengths

The Slosher is a powerful weapon that dumps a large amount of ink out at once, making it perfect for coating Splatoon 3's stages in your team's ink. It also deals a great amount of damage, especially if your target is above you. The ink arcs into the air and comes down, giving it a good amount of range.

  • Great for inking turf.
  • Deals good damage.
  • Good forward range.

Splatoon 3 Slosher Weaknesses

While the Slosher can deal a good amount of damage and has good range directly in front of it, it does suffer in two areas. It deals less damage to targets below you, so you will need to watch your position when battling enemies. It also does not have a good horizontal range, meaning you really only hit the target in front of you. Lastly, it does have a somewhat slower fire rate.

  • Damage falls off on targets below you.
  • Does not have good side-to-side coverage.
  • Throwing ink takes time.

Splatoon 3 Slosher Type Weapons

  • Slosher (Level 3)
    • Splat Bomb: A bomb that explodes a short time after it lands. It inks the area around it when it explodes and can even take out opponents.
    • Triple Ink Strike: Throw and deploy a guidance device with R to cause a tornado-generating ink strike to land on that spot from above. You can deploy up to three guidance devices to activate three separate ink tornadoes.
  • Tri-Slosher (Level 10)
